Originally focused on the development and manufacturing of movements, Piaget began making watches under its own name in 1943, about 70 years after its foundation in Côte-aux-Fées by the will of Georges Edouard Piaget in 1874. They immediately centralized their efforts and ideas in the creation of very thin watches, setting new records as the world’s thinnest simple or complicated watches, with special features like visible dials and engine, also known as skeletonized watches, developing the spirit of luxury in an atmosphere of creativity, attention to detail, and fully integrated expertise that would have characterized them forever. The very beautiful chronograph in white gold offered is one of the finest examples for its attention to detail and the unusual set of features that make it up. This is a diamond model of “Gouverneur Chrono”, which became the current design in 2012, the production technology of the movement is very high crafted to make the feeling of the thinness that is Piaget’s true value, and the design is a perfect fusion of classic and modern. Gouverneur means “sovereign” in French and the model itself existed in the late ’80s, but was completely different from the current round and oval design.
